Actually, Q, now that you mention it, I do remember that "Back In Hackensack, NJ" song as the predecessor of "My Little Grass Shack."   LOL

BTW, I've found that often (too often, IMO) in the hapa haole pop songs recorded in the 1920s and 1930s, the haole singers (and dancers) were incredibly sloppy in their pronunciation of the Hawaii'an language words (and in their feeble "hula" attempts).

Here is a prime example.
